Sheffield Homeless charity feels the long arm of the law
Sheffield charity, Homeless and Rootless at Christmas (HARC), has been feeling the long arm of the law by receiving donations from staff at local solicitors Norrie Waite & Slater.
The charity helps vulnerable men and women between Christmas Eve and New Years Day by providing hot meals and drinks as well as a place to spend the festive period, at a time when many other services may be closed for the holidays.
The staff at Norrie Waite & Slater raised £126 by holding a dress down day in the office in addition to making donations of essential items such as toiletries and clothing.
The charity aims to offer practical support as well as providing some festive cheer to otherwise barren lives. During the festive period the project is visited by a hairdresser and chiropodist as well as distributing clothing to those in need.
Pauline Williams, who organised the fundraising on behalf of Norrie Waite & Slater said “Our staff believe HARC is a very worthwhile Sheffield charity and are aware just how vital donations such as ours are. It was also good fun to see how the staff dress when not at work.”
HARC does not receive any official grants and therefore relies entirely on donations.
